So you've been looking at this apartment for so long that you let it slip through your fingers, yes? I love this question. As it so happens time, tide and real estate wait for no man. If I were the owner, it would take a cash offer, no, a hugh cash offer with no financial contingency to consider being bought out. For all you know, this might be the current owners dream home in exactly the location they wanted. That is something you can barely put a price on. Send them some mail, see if you can start a conversation and see where it leads. ... more

I agree with Jenet, the answer is no. The Village is and will always be a highly sought after area. There's more co-ops then condos or new development in the area which insulates it from financial issues that a home buyer might have. The price per square feet is holding strong and has not decreased compared to other parts of the city. It's a great area to purchase and it's a great area to live.

A lot has changed since 2008 when the question was posted. The areas that you inquired about are still exceptional locations in NYC and some of my favorite. Currently prices are holding steady, in Tribeca you can purchase a two bedroom for approx $1.165 million, or a loft for approx $1.360 mill. In the village a convertible three bedroom is priced at approx $1.16 mill..interest rates are low, sellers are nervous, it's a solid buyer's market. There's no free lunch and sellers arent' giving their units away but they are certainly more flexible then in the past. ”. If I may be of service feel free to contact me anytime.

Diary Of A Real Estate Rookie answered:
Of course not.

The problem will come when you want to change the status of the house to sell it.

If you want to sell it as a single family home (more valuable) you'll need to get the certificate of occupancy changed.

If you want to live in it as a single-family but resell as a multifamily, your buyer will wonder what you've done with the two extra kitchens, and will ask that you reinstall them before he/she buys.
